? >>> tonight, across gaza, people are being told to flee their homes by the israeli defense force. they're trying to find shelter. arwa damon has the story of what it's like on the ground. >> reporter: this is the first family we came across. barreling down the road. all they knew was that they did not dare stay at home. we left without knowing where to go, she tells us, cradling her 4-month-old. they could hear explosions as they fled. what caused the mass exodus was the israeli army dropping leaflets, warning residents in certain areas, they needed to depart immediately for gaza city. and the leaflet even indicates specifically which routes they should take to stay safe. and though few believed the israelis, leaving was a better option than staying behind. she says, their house was hit a few days ago. this is the second school they have actually gone to, looking for a safe place to stay. but it obviously was full, as well. and now we're going with them to try out a third one. it's already packed. people angrily move benches, staking their claim. there is another school, a young man ge

'll remove them. kennedy fry to work out what defensive mean. what is it we can't live with and can live with in cuba? the american doctrine has different idea. the soviet doctrine, we goat the details there, but there's a struggle to prove what the understanding is. the long range bombers to the americans, these had about 750 mile range. they could hate lot of the southeast sides. they were very old. they were obsolete. they weren't much match for the american anti-- the american offense system in the southeastern united states. but the problem was -- and let's backtrack. kennedy himself did not think these were particularly a big problem. and actually it comes through on the tapes as the one who is least worried about the il27. he's on tape a few things saying we don't want it get hung on these. i thought we were being a bit unreasonable trying to get them out. he's trying to put himself in crew shove's position. we have to get them out. even ia military threat in the clin cap sense. to the american public, they are not going to be allowed to stay. we can't live with the american publi
is not probably what he's going to do. he doesn't immediately jump to the defense of cuba. and he looks halfway around the world to where the peace deal is most vulnerable. .. and kirchoff kept bringing up her land that we are going to bring this up in november at the united nations after the midterm election. so he had been broadcasting this to the summer. kennedy had been reading all of these reports. the conditions going into this process to believe that kirchoff is going to force the issue. that the issue that kennedy keeps coming back to cuba. so if u.s. kennedy would be sent to hear an kennedy himself was talking about this, kennedy would say, west berlin. he would not say defensive cuba. so the cuba angle doesn't come through a lot. they're not really thinking this through because it doesn't make sense. the way that it's in 1962 would be to do some kind of mutual trudy were to spend lots of conventional weapons, which is what they were doing, but not then long-range missiles that the united states. >> is funny, khrushchev saturday said that tactical fields. he would've had a a hard time
bombing that took place in tel aviv. that blast happening as the bus was passing the defense ministry there. hamas leaders praised that bombing calling it a natural response to israeli massacres in gaza. in gaza, however, people took to the streets in celebration of that explosion in israel. the white house condemning the bus bombing, going on record saying that the u.s. will stand with its israeli allies. joining me from cairo, nbc news correspondent jim maceda. jim, explain to all of us the reaction to secretary clinton's visit to the region and the impact that her presence has brought to the negotiations for a cease-fire. >> reporter: first, the reaction has been one of anxiety, anticipation, and of deep hope that secretary of state hillary clinton can now broker or help to broke err deal. they certainly don't want war right next door. many are asking where america has been for these past eight or so years. i think the overall feeling is one of anticipation, that something hopefully now can move forward. in terms of her impact today, she's met already with president morsi. she's al
secretary of defense, it would be shooting ourselves in the foot. the smallest navy since 1914 and the smallest air force in the history of the country so sequestration must be replaced. i'm willing to generate revenue. it's fair to ask my party to put revenue on the table. we're below historic averages. i will not raise tax rates to do it. i will cap deductions. if you cap deductions around the $30,000, $40,000 you can raise a trillion dollars in revenue. the people who lose their deductions are the upper income americans. to do this i want entitlement reforms. republicans always put revenue on the table. we never cut spending. i'm looking for more revenue for entitlement review before the end of the year. >> i want to ask senator durbin about that. in the end, norquist said that you're not going to go through with this promise to race revenues because you quote like being a senator. your response? >> i love being a senator and i want to be a senator that matters for the state of south carolina and the country. when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be mak

. norquist said a number of times in defense of his position, look, what's wrong with saying to a politician, when you want my vote and you make a promise, you should keep that promise. what's wrong with saying that to either side about any topic? >> so, i think that there's nothing wrong with that. this is about making political commitments, something politicians have to and should do. my own preference is not written pledges, but in fact, people who say this is what i believe and follow through on it. i think one thing it did do is focus its attention, which is still under discussed. we have an enormous spending problem, it's about entitlement problem. what the president was forced some recognition that the threshold decision is to spend the money. >> ethan, your reaction to this whole idea that norquist keeps saying, it's about taxes for him, but also about politicians being honest. you should mean what you say and pursue it in that fashion. what do you think? >> sure, i have nothing against pledges politics make to voters. i have a problem when they're pledging bad policy. if you look at
as it is a spending problem. >> we heard so much about sequestration in terms of defense cuts. i get entitlements. i get the issue when it comes to taxes. you look at the amount of money this country spends on defense, is it an area where republicans say we can make cuts there as well if you want cuts on entitlements? >> absolutely. we need to make cuts anywhere we can. there are efficiencies we can find in military spending. that doesn't mean that the kind of sequestration called for by the budget act of 2011 is the way to do it. those cuts fall disproportionately on the department of defense and i think that's a problem. i've got a bill in the form of my cut, cap and balance act of 2012 that makes sequestration unnecessary because there are more cuts, some in defense and others in other areas. i have another piece of legislation that i have not yet introduced but am working on. targeted kus so we don't have to carry out all of the cutting in the area of defense or disproportionately in the area of defense. >> i want to bring in u.n. ambassador susan rice, who has a meeting on the hill in the next
is struck over the fiscal cliff. the automatic spending cuts, defense and non-defense. in the report, educational achievement and special- education programs would be shaved by an 2.3 billion. this was written in september. in "politico" there is an opinion piece by the person who serves on the education board, president of the national school boards association and member of the board of education in kentucky. he writes -- so a little better about money and this conversation we're having this money, ties into the fiscal cliff talks, because defense and non-defense spending, automatic cuts take place if no deal is reached. so we are turning to all of you outside washington this morning. how would you fix your school system? natasha in macon, georgia, an educator. caller: yes. host: what are your thoughts? caller: schools need to allow various ways of teaching. a very rigid process where we are looking for one out, but not allowing different ways to teach multiple varieties of students. host: what does that mean? you have to teach in a certain way because of testing requirements? call
it would only be used defensively. but i see this conflict in some ways migrating towards turkey. today we had thousands of people -- >> last thing turkey wants. >> well, know, it is what is happening because some of the aid for the rebels is coming through there. they now have bases with these patriot missile batteries used to protect the rebel bases there inside syria, but on the border with turkey. got the russians with a warship in the mediterranean. the u.s. has warships in the mediterranean. all of this says to us that this situation is coming to a peak or least our military and intelligence leaders think it is coming to a peak. you have two task forces there and both of them are saying, the americans are saying we are doing this in case we have to evacuate our civilians and the russians are saying exactly the same thing. >> something has to happen. jim clancy, thank you. >>> he was on the run for 14 years. until now. how the feds just caught one of america's most wanted fugitives. >>> plus, not even a week after the cease-fire with hamas, one of israel's leaders calling it quits now
treasury secretary geithner and even defense secretary leon panetta has made it clear he would like to leave within the year. the current white house chief of staff still considered the odds on favorite to get the nod to become the next treasury secretary from the president. it's believed he has the greatest chance here it's believed of getting senate confirmation. that leaves open the job of white house chief of staff. and i'm hearing that among the names that are being considered for that role are ron clay, the man once biden's chief of staff and did himself i'm told a great service in president obama's debate prep despite that bad first debate the president takes responsibility for it, does not blame mr. clain. and another name i've heard floated is dennis mcdunna. earned the great respect and admiration of the president. a young man not often considered in that light but the president admires him. but that of course leaves open the question who would take over for secretary clinton and for leon panetta. and those are some dicey questions right now given what dana has just report

it, but he did write an impassioned defense of pete seeger. will kaufman: yeah. it's one of the most heartbreaking things to read that i came across in the archives. it's a letter that he wrote to pete seeger. and woody'sone of the symptoms of huntington's disease is that it has an incredible impact upon one's sense of languagesentence construction, spelling, wordplay, whatever. his biographer joe klein calls it "linguistic anarchy." and so, he wrote a very moving letter to pete seeger, basically saying, "look, pete, i hear you're not going to haveyou may not have to go to jail now, and that's great. but i've never heard you say one evil or hateful or dangerous thing, and these people on this un-american committee are the most un- americanistic people i've ever heard of." and stuff like that. so amy goodman: would you like to read the letter? will kaufman: yeah, whenhe's talking about harold leventhal, his manager, harold leventhal, or hal, and fred hellerman of the weavers, who came to visit woody in hospital. and woody wrote to seeger. he says, "hal and freddy told me when they vis
for having to excuse myself, whether you all got into the defense budget. so here is what no one wants to talk about. the defense budget is that about $800 billion a year. the united states commitment to the military budget is greater than the military budget of the next 10 highest military spending nations combined. those 10 nations together -- together spend about 50 -- 450 billion. we spent 800 billion. now here is the trick. our money is heavily invested in sophisticated military hardware. very sophisticated pieces of equipment, which truthfully impact our domestic economy. but the truth of the matter is the discussion about budgets from having put many, many budgets together is not a discussion just about money. it is a discussion about priorities and values. and we have to determine, you know, to me when you talk about what the deal is to be made, to sequester includes deep cuts in the military. and many on the right and mini and communities with error bars, military contractors that employ a lot of people will art in to avoid this military cuts. what we have to say is the nation

on the israeli side are accusing prime minister netanyahu of backing down. the former head of the israeli defense forces now a political rival of netanyahu said, quote: the goals of his operation were not reached and the next round is only a matter of time. we should not have stopped at this stage. hamas got stronger and we did not gain deterrence. prime minister netanyahu of course would say that his goal was to stop the rocket attacks. he did that and that israel still has the ability to go back in and crush hamas militarily if it deems it is necessary. jon. >> jon: but this is not the first time that attacking israel has helped. what much of the world considers a terrorist group. >> yeah, you only have to go back to 2006 the war that israel fought against hezbollah in will be none. launched a range of rocket attacks against israel. israeli forces launched a similar onslaught against them. at the end of all of that hezbollah became much more popular in lebanon. much more powerful politically, now you may see a similar situation play out in in the palestinian people. what other experts way woo

thought there was an interesting article. dave cote from honeywell, the guy who runs the defense sector there -- >> is he french now? >> no, what's his name? >> very sophisticated. >> they were talking about how defense has to be cut and i think that's an important statement. i think this whole thing starts with the defense cuts and everything else will fall in line. i do think we'll get some resolution on this, whether it spills into the new year doesn't matter. i think everybody is preparing for the imminent tax hike anyway. it's just going to come. on the issue of dividends and capital gains, that will be hung out there, will we go up to the ordinary, i don't think so. i think it will be some compromise. it's not that i'm hoping that, but i think that there will be. >> does it matter if we -- so we cave. we're afraid, we don't want anything bad to happen. so we're going to raise some taxes. we're going to cave, but we're not going to really cut spending, we don't want to hurt anyone. this is what we do and no one could fail. you know, a couple years ago -- is it bad that we don't tak
that a victory. but they're trying to make hay and get local support. >> and they lost their key defense chief as well. there was another major player over the last few days. that's been egypt and mohamed morsi. he's largely credited by the u.s. for helping the cease-fire deal happen. but he did something extraordinary overnight, which he gave himself some new administrative powers, essentially makes all of this rulings over the last five months and going forward immune from any kind of legal challenges. some people are saying this is just the next step in becoming more of a dictator here. was he taking advantage of the situation? >> well, we'll have to watch this closely. it appears, you know, the timing is curious. he's gotten the support and this pump, particularly for this role in mediating the cease-fire from the united states, and from others. he's really seen as emerging stronger from this. but this is an issue that goes back to whether the judiciary in egypt was appointed by mubarak and a check on the executive branch. and what he said is this is a temporary, until they have a constitu
. the other thing we'll focus on is i think the defense department, for instance, tried to immediately to get help to our personnel on the ground in benghazi, but help was far away. it raises a question about whether the after can command of the u.s. military ought to have more assets and personnel nearby on the ground. the third part about what happened after every afterwards is obviously a real concern. i think particularly in fairness to ambassador rice, there ought to be the widest public airing of what led to her statements and others in the administration particularly obviously if she's going to be mom natured for secretary of state or some other high office. >> that's not an automatic no for you if she were to be nominated. >> no, because, first of all, i think she's had a distinguished career up until now, but secondly, i don't know -- i don't feel that i know exactly what she was told before she went on tv that sunday morning, and i think we ought to find out before we decide on whether she's a good or bad public servant. >> senator kyl used the term coverup, correct, in terms of, li

of this. it proved that its iron dome missile defense system could protect vast areas and could shoot down the majority of hamas rockets. and one of the things it's going to get out of this from the united states is additional help in providing more missiles for iron dome so that it has even a greater range of protection. so the dynamics are changing a little bit on both sides. both sides can claim victory. but neither side can win militarily and both sides know that. >> you just brought up iron dome. you also brought up hezbollah, which brings up the question of iran here, another major actor, maybe the key actor in opposition to israel in the region. if you're iran and you just watched this for the last ten days, what do you take from it? >> well, that israel does have means of protecting itself. it does have this new iron dome defense capability. i'm not convinced that iran actually, if it is developing a nuclear weapon, has the intention of using it against israel. but what it -- what the bigger question really is would hezbollah and neighboring -- in a country that neighbors israel us
